October, 2020

Dear friends of Coro Lux,

As we head into the seventh month of the pandemic quarantine, our organization continues to work toward the day when things will return to “normal.” However, it seems clear that when that day comes, things will not be quite the same.

We’ve all had to embrace new technology. Or rather, most of us became far more familiar with technology that some have been using for awhile. For example, the board and chorus now meet regularly via Zoom. And our Virtual Carol Sing will be offered on our new YouTube channel.

Along those same lines, we’re happy to have used this time to start an e-newsletter! Look for a link to that elsewhere on this page. And if you’re not already a subscriber, we hope you’ll sign up on the form also found just to the right of this letter.

We’re so very proud of the work of our ad hoc medical committee and their comprehensive Report on Singing in the Time of COVID-19. And while these are fraught times in our country, we believe in the power of art to bring people together. To that end, please note our official Statement on Inclusivity.

Though these are the roughest times many of us can remember, we must also recall that history is filled with upheavals. These are just our particular issues. Yet through it all, people have been comforted and cheered by singing, that most human of all the arts. We’ll keep singing when and where we can, until we can all sing together once again.

Stay safe,

Bradley Ellingboe
Artistic Director and Founder

Coro Lux Statement on Inclusivity

Coro Lux is built on the ideal of “doing good as we do well.” We believe that in diversity there is strength. We believe the voices of the world should be heard, regardless of ethnicity, gender, religion, nationality, or sexual orientation. In the past we have used our concerts to call for peace and to benefit charitable causes, and we will redouble our efforts going forward. Through our art we sing for a better world.

Would you like to attend our Virtual Carol Sing on Tuesday, December 15 @7pm? Send an email to info@abqcorolux.org so that we can send you a Zoom invitation!

JanFest 2021 ticket sales are live on our Tickets page.
